Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea travel to the south coast to take on Brighton in a tricky game for the European champions.
The Blues were beaten by Kevin De Bruyne’s strike at Man City last time out and will hope to bounce back quickly with the Club World Cup and the last 16 of the Champions League coming up.
Brighton meanwhile will hope to turn their dominance spells in possession into victories, having only taken a point last time out against Crystal Palace.
This game is being played tonight due to the European champions’ commitment to play in the Club World Cup, shifting from the original 8 February date, a move that Thomas Tuchel is struggling to come to terms with.
Here is everything you need to know:
When is it and what time is kick-off?
The match will get underway at 8pm GMT at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday 18 January.
How can I watch it online and on TV?
The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate, coverage starts at 7:30pm and subscribers can stream the game on the move on mobile devices.
Brighton: Sanchez; Lamptey, Veltman, Webster, Burn, Cucurella; Gross, Alzate, Moder; Mac Allister, Welbeck
Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, T Silva, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Ziyech
This looks to be a close encounter which will test the character of the Blues coming off defeat, with Brighton likely to hold their own in possession and in good form themselves, we’ll opt for a 1-1 draw.
